New Poster and Stills for tvN Drama Tale of Gumiho with Lee Dong Wook, Jo Boa, and Kim Bum

I don’t know why but I totally get the Korean version of Twilight vibes from upcoming tvN drama Tale of Gumiho. From the posters to the styling of male lead Lee Dong Wook like a modern day vampire/gumiho hybrid, the drama production projects more style over substance (for now). The second poster is out and me no likey, I don’t see any chemistry between the way too airbrushed leads and the pose with the moon in the background is beyond cheesy. There are also new drama stills, with the leads at an event where again they seem like they are each in a different drama, he’s a posing whil Jo Boa is like a hardscrabble reporter at work. Second male lead Kim Bum dons a nebbishy disguise in his new stills, a nerdy harmless college kid look opposite Jo Boa. I honestly have no clue what I’m supposed to be interested in but I guess that’s in itself something interesting, no?

  1. I watched Jo Boa in Shut Up Flower Boyband & Temperature of Love and I’ve never thought that she’s a good actress. She always make exaggeration expression and when you compare her to their co-star like Seo Hyunjin, there’s glaring difference on their acting skill. She looks like she filming sitcom by herself when it’s actually melodrama.

  2. I wished someone else was cast as the female lead. She maybe pretty but sometimes pretty isn’t enough to be the female lead. Is there really no other choice out there?

  3. Twilight is such an apt comparison. Despite everything I’m still looking forward to this. If it isn’t good, it could still be in the “so bad it’s somehow good” category.

  4. im not a fan of the lead actress I did not enjoy Forest of Patk Hae Jin because of her. , her acting annoys me but do like the Male lead. I liked him in goblin and touch.

  5. The poster looks like that of the train wreck ‘Bride of the Water God.’ Not a good sign. People commenting about how bad the female lead is, but it’s not like the male lead is any better with his 20+ years of acting experience haha.
